Ransom Font T-shirt

I took my grandaughter's t-shirt and placed a piece of contrasting t-shirt material inside. I put a piece of cardboard between the front and back of the shirt to avoid sewing them together. Then I freehand stitched a Ransom type font letters through both layers of material. This could be done with the children's name or with a design or many other things. I chose to make a THUNDER t-shirt.
After I got all the letters outline stitched, I took a pair of scissors and clipped the center out of the top t-shirt fabric. This allows the contrasting fabric to show through and gives a ransom looking message. You could make this cut out lettering look a lot better if you used the sewing machine, but I was playing with this while watching tv.
We were so proud of the OKC Thunder for making it to the NBA Finals!
What an honor for such a young team to come in second in the nation!
We are still proud to be the NBA Western Conference Champions!
Can't wait until next year!!!

  1. This is just too cool! What a wonderful way to personalize a t-shirt. It certainly would be a fast project using a machine.
